Good Luck.
new report says living in city makes it harder for people to concentrate. research found that people who live in rural areas can focus better than people in urban areas. study is from Goldsmiths College, which is part of University of London. Head researcher Dr Karina Linnell and her team studied how two groups of people did same "thinking tasks". The team went to remote part of Namibia, southwest Africa, to study Himba tribe. Himba people live very basic life in desert, doing traditional farming. team also studied members of same tribe who had moved to nearest town. Dr Linnell said tribe who lived in desert did much better on tests than those in town.

Dr Linnell's research may change way companies operate. In future, workers may relocate from cities to live and work in countryside. Linnell said there are too many things around us in city that stop us from thinking about one thing for a long time. This means we do not work at our best. She asked: "What if, for example, companies realised certain tasks would be better carried out by employees based outside of urban environment where their concentration ability is better?" past century has seen billions of people move from countryside to big cities. If Dr Linnell's research is true, this century might see many of those people return to great outdoors.
